Greatest Athletes of All Time

The Contenders: Page 12

221 Maurice Greene

Best personality ever and also the greatest athlete ever!

222 Allyson Felix

For me, the absolute best athlete, by far. She impresses me in every way possible.

223 Bart Starr Bart Starr

First quarterback to win a super bowl and two time mvp

224 Stefan Edberg
225 Joseph Addai

Only rookie to get 1000+ yards (didn't even start the whole season) of the 06-07 season. And to top it off won a Super Bowl. Yeah reggie bush is amazing. But Addai is good.

Joseph Addai is a combination of Jim Brown and Walter Payton.

226 Frank Fredericks

Frank Fredericks is way too underrated. He is the coolest man ever!

227 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an English club Manchester United and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

When ZLATAN was a child his parents slept in his bed when they were scared

233 Damian Lillard Damian Lillard Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard is an American professional basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.

Beast mode damian your better than lebron and chris paul

He is the face of the Trail Blazers franchise - Htown3ball

He is really good and I love him but Steph Curry is probably better. No offense. But Dame Rocks

234 Antonio Brown Antonio Brown Antonio Brown is an American football wide receiver and punt returner for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He is often regarded as one of the best Wide Receivers in today's game in the NFL. Brown was selected 195th overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round.

I don't think he's the best yet but if a mediocre player who is known for 1 great catch and has done nothing sense. Why shouldn't Antonio Brown be on the list. After all he is probably the best receiver in the NFL today

Sup nice catches your really good player

He helps the Steelers win a lot

Love him. Want to be like him.

235 Mark Spitz Mark Spitz Mark Andrew Spitz is an American former competitive swimmer, nine-time Olympic champion, and former world record-holder in seven events.

In the 1972 Summer Olympics Mark Spitz won seven gold medals in swimming and set seven new world records. A feat only surpassed by Michael Phelps in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

He dominated men's swimming in the late 60's and early 70's in ways never seen before. I believe that he was listed the Guinness Book of World Records on several occasions.

239 Darren Lockyer Darren Lockyer

In the NRL, none compare. In other sports, few come close.
Comparing the dedication to the sport, to the fans, to the development - none come close. There's the humility, the longevity, great role model. Everything rolled up into one guy. Definitely the world's greatest athlete - if rugby league were a world sport, everyone would agree.

NRL. Not the most popular sport in US but in Australia... EVERYONE knows Lockyer is the greatest NRL player to ever play 'the' game! #1 Fullback #5/8th Most games/wins in Team, State and National. GO LOCKY! - evergrey123
